Ubiogrow Vs. Miracle-gro
I know, I know. I said I am trying to be chemical free. I have this Miracle-gro sitting in my cupboard which is almost gone and I decided that I wanted to run a scientific experiment. I got a sample of this new organic fertilizer from Tom and I want to compare the results of the two fertilizers over the growing season. I have two ice cream buckets of exactly the same size which are properly labelled so no cross contamination can occur between the two fertilizers. They will be mixed and watered according to the instructions included on the package.
While that may be difficult to do in most situations, I happen to have two identical planters planted with the same soil mix (2 parts topsoil, 1 part sand, 1 part sphagnum, 1 part cow manure compost) and 3 plants from the six packs of veggies that I bought, so they were all the same size at planting time. The planters are actually strawberry planters that I hung on either end of the new grape trellis that my sweet hubby built for me this year. They both get the same amount of sun during the day as well. The leaves are yellow indicating the fact that they could use some nitrogen. I took pictures of both, but the other one didn't turn out as nice as this one did (plus this one shows off my lovely trellis).
May the best fertilizer win.
